## How to calculate a percentage increase?

**Example:-If the petrol price is $2.5 in December month and the petrol price is $2.75 in January month then find a percentage increase in January.**

- Petrol price in december = $2.5
- Petrol price in january = $2.75
- Percentage increase of price = (January price of petrol – December price of petrol) / December price of petrol * 100
- % increase = (2.75 – 2.5) / 2.5 * 100
- % increase = ( 0.25 ) / 2.5 * 100
- % increase = + 10%
- 10% increase in petrol price in January month.

**Example:-If the Diesel price is $1.75 in September month and the diesel price is $2.23 in October months then find a percentage increase in October.**

- Diesel price in december = $2.5
- Diesel price in january = $2.75
- Percentage increase of price = (October price of diesel – September price of diesel) / September price of diesel * 100
- % increase = (2.23 – 1.75) / 1.75 * 100
- % increase = ( 0.48 ) / 1.75 * 100
- % increase = + 27.429%
- 27.429% increase in diesel price in October month.
